and the poll numbers lang wish the expectations turn sour. or sometimes the candidate enters the race as a front- runner based on name recognition and institutional support like hillary clinton. and the polls give her an insurmountable lead but after months of campaigning low and behold bernie sanders is with her trapping clinton of unmet expectations but the thing about the the expectations game if played cleverly it can turn on a dime. clinton is trying to set up a scenario where a loss to sanders next tuesday by less than double digit is actual -- digits is actually a comeback. just like the one her husband pulled off finishing second in new hampshire in 1992. we just saw marco rubio turn the same trick in iowa. where a third place finish is successfully spun as a huge victory. which leads us to donald trump.

over15 and 20 miles per hour. look at temperatures 54 in boston. 57 in nashua and colder air to the north and west but we are staying in the 50s today. and yes, he there are a lot of clouds around. a couple showers lingering here but the steady rain is done. you may get a prist when you -- spritz from providence to new bedford and taunton this morning. and there may be a quick shower here or there especially in the cape and islands until midday.
the temperatures will stay in the 50s too. so it's warm and then tonight brings the changes. the colder air starts to work in. so around midnight we should be in the 40s and we see temperatures fall through the 30s and that cold air combined with moisture to the south is going to spell areas of rain and snow for tonight and tomorrow. so it's the next wave of low he pressure that's coming -- low pressure that's coming out of the front that came through yesterday stalling off the coastline it. doesn't get a -- coastline. it doesn't get a push offshore. moisture comes back into thepicture later this evening
from boston to the south coast. the problem is that as the colder air comes in the rain is going to change over the wet snow neighbors tomorrow morning. poor timing for the morning commute. notice the sharp cut off well north and west of boston. cloudy skies. keep in mind there's a little wiggle room so if the storm comes closer, we may have to shift everything farther south and east. same for if it goes farther out to sea. but either way looks like southeastern massachusetts will have the biggest impact. wet snowflakes means more wet roads at first and then as the snow comes down at a pretty good clip between mid to late morning, especially from the south shore back down to the south coast, that's when we get most of the snowfall to stick reduces visibility and may cause a few isolated outages because of the consistency of the snow. more like a coted coating north and west of the boston. closer to the city one to two, two to five here in the outer
so the highest totals is in southeastern massachusetts. weekend forecast still looking good. filtered sunshine on saturday and mid-40s on sunday and then the next storm comes in for tuesday with cold air looks like it could be inches of snow. we will keep you posted on the track. traffic and weather together. >> reporter: hearing about an accident on the mass pike in the city. you can see it on one of the traffic cameras. the crash involves a truck on the pike westbound. just before the alwayston brighton tolls a. the truck was involved in a hit-and-run and a car hit the truck and then the driver of the car took off. you can see the truck is off to the side and state police are talking to the driver. we are not seeing lane closures there. to the south expressway heavy between the split and columbia road. 128 southbound bogs down between logan express and the split and north 93 southbound getting slow in the andover stretch but getting sluggish med heford into leverett connector. chris and kathryn. >> thanks very much.
